Got a BIG ole migraine and then it went away with my new miracle herbs! In recovery mode now.

I used to like to draw and I used to like to look at arts. I had friends who went to art school and knew a teacher or two and I knew what they did was something more neurosis-inducing that what I did.

I was always glad I was doing my own thing which was making stuff like pretty birthday cards and my own wedding invitations and doodling for children in pediatrician waiting rooms and painting a life size oil portrait of my dog. I felt happy in my place--not a good artist, just a arty person.

I don't know when I decided I wanted to be good. I think I'm going to try to BE BAD from now on. There's art in BAD. IN FANART BAD. YES, I SHALL BE BAD.

Anyway, two interesting articles from [community profile] metafandom 

Why Fanfic?
